Interview: Josh Turner Helps Spread The Spirit Of The Season With Cracker Barrel’s ‘Countdown To Christmas’ Campaign

I dreamed for years of living in Nashville and getting a record deal. I didn’t know how it was going to happen. I didn’t know how long it was going to take. I was just extremely confident that it would happen,” Josh Turner recently told AXS, reflecting back on his journey. The day the South Carolina native finally saw that come to fruition, marks one of his proudest moments. “I was living proof that dreams come true. You put in the work and you never give up and continue to push forward and push towards that goal – it can happen for you,” Turner continued.

The country star recounted milestones, from his first hit song (which he wrote by himself in his apartment while he was in college) to getting inducted into the Grand Ole Opry to completing each of his albums. “I just put so much hard work and effort and passion into every record that I’ve done. When it’s finally released, it’s a proud moment,” the “Long Black Train” singer said.

Following Turner’s sixth studio album, Deep South (which debuted at No. 1), came the artist’s very first gospel album. I Serve A Savior was released on Oct. 26, 2018, via MCA Nashville. The record debuted at No. 1 on Nielsen’s Country Albums Chart and No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums Chart. The live performance DVD took the No. 1 spot on both Billboard’s Music Video and Christian Music Video Charts.
